We invite you to join us for a five-day adventure in the Peruvian Andes. Our adventure starts in the enchanting Andean city of Cusco. Located at 11,200 ft (3,400m), Cusco was the historic capital of the Inca Empire from the 13th until the 16th-century Spanish conquest. Exploring Cusco’s cobble-stoned streets, you will discover the church of Santo Domingo flanking the Plaza de Armas. Here in the lively plaza and beyond, you will find Amerindian and mestizo culture, beautiful textiles, lively festivals, interesting shops, Peruvian restaurants and cozy cafes. You will have time to wander around this high Andean colonial city, take a chocolate cooking class, get a massage or sip a pisco sour in a cafe watching Peruvian locals walk past you with their shopping bags. Visit the Mercado San Pedro, or the more intimate Mercado San Bas for breakfast or lunch with the locals. Stroll around the Pisac market for local crafts and produce. We will have two nights to acclimatize to the altitude and to prepare us for what’s to come.
